The rc2 file extension is associated with C/C++ programming language.

The *.rc2 files are used for resource script files by various software compilers and contain instructions on how to compile the program source files.

Some of the Application Wizards generate an rc2 resource file in addition to the standard rc resource file.

This rc2 file is not intended to be compiled by the Resource Compiler; actually, it contains resources that the Resource Compiler does not handle.

Examples include the HI_RES_AWARE custom resource and Menu Resource Data (RCDATA). The .RC2 file is a great place for other custom resources that shouldn't be edited by the Resource Compiler.
